    If I activate my annual pass voucher at guest services on Sept 1st 2022, but do not use the pass to enter a park until Oct 31st 2022 , when does my annual pass expire? Is is Sept 1st 2023 or Oct 31st 2022. Thanks.

    Hi, Joe! Welcome to planDisney

    It is so exciting that you've purchased a new Walt Disney World Annual Pass. A year of magic is just incredible. I've been a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder for years and years now and I absolutely love it. Being able to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks most anytime I would like is so much fun. Plus, benefits like complimentary theme park parking and discounts on food and merchandise cannot be beaten. It really is a great program. 

    Joe, a brand new Walt Disney World Annual Pass expires one year from the date of activation. I would hold off and have your pass activated in October when you visit instead. Activation only takes a few minutes so if you arrive early, it shouldn't set your itinerary back too much. All you need to bring with you is your annual pass and a valid photo i.d. A Cast Member will verify that you match your Walt Disney World Annual Pass and off you'll go. You can stop by any of the Guest Relations windows at any of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks or at Disney Springs to do this. 

    Halloween is such a fun time to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. Everything is dressed up not-so-scary which makes things feel so festive. Keep in mind that if you are visiting Magic Kingdom Park on October 31st that there is a special ticketed event that night and it will close early to regular day Guests. I wanted to mention that so you can plan your schedule according.

    I hope this helps, Joe. If you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Annual Pass, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Welcome to the passholder family!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
